Megastretch™ Stretch Film for MEGA Pallet Stabilisation!

With so many stretch films on the market, it can be quite a minefield when selecting the right type of pallet wrap to securely ship and/or store your goods.

Often, it comes down to trial and error, with a lot of companies spending time and effort trialling different stretch wraps, from a range of sources, in search of the best solution for their business, to achieve the best performance & at a reasonable price. In fact we have new enquirers every day from companies across the UK, complaining that their current stretch film isn't retaining tension, loads are not secure and their stretch film tears very easily.

The high-quality Megastretch™ stretch film range is the most obvious solution for our customers, due to the varied range of film grades, thicknesses, widths and lengths, for both machine and manual use. Our Megastretch™ range ensures pallet stabilisation and security, due to its excellent stretch and memory characteristics. A product that has developed consistently over the last 15 years.

Read our helpful buying guide below, to help you decide on which type of Megastretch™ stretch film you should be using for your pallet loads, packages and products.

Shape of Load: Do you have protruding corners, or is it an unusual shape? 
Transit Conditions: Are your products going to be in long transit, shipped across the world, nationally or locally?
Storage: Will products/packages be stored in a warehouse for large amounts of time? Will loads be stacked? Are your products stored in freezer conditions?
